My hero is…

My dad. I look up to him not only because of his many accomplishments in life and clarity of thought, but because of his deep-seated faith and love of God as shown through his actions. My dad was a pioneer in R&D at Intel and then later Hewlett-Packard during Silicon Valley’s early years. He was one of the contributors to the semiconductor computer chip industry that has revolutionized the way we live today, but he rarely spoke about his work or many patents and degrees with us. Instead, he spoke to us about the importance of serving God, and he would later go into full time mission work in Germany while he was at the peak of his career as a High-tech executive. Actions speak louder than words and I’m thankful that my dad has been a role model that I can look up to.  

I'm a huge fan of…

The Washington Husky Football team. Go Dawgs!  I graduated in 2008 when they went 0-12, so I’ve experienced the nadir of fandom. Thankfully, things can only get better (and have – see 2017 College Playoffs) from here on out!

The book that influenced me the most is…

The Bible. Ronald Reagan said it best: “Within the covers of the Bible are the answers for all the problems men face.” The passage that has influenced me the most in my life is Proverbs 3:5-6
